8 Day Italy Family Highlights
With its fascinating ruins, magical art, open spaces, and abundance of tasty treats, Italy seems almost tailor-made for kids (not to mention their accompanying adults). Got a fussy eater? The homeland of pizza and gelato will turn them into a gourmet overnight. Got a sourpuss who thinks history is just boring old stuff? Fill their head with stories of gladiators and secret tunnels and watch how quickly the past comes to life. This family-focused itinerary blends discovery, sightseeing, and plenty of hands-on action in Rome, Florence, and Venice into a transformative experience they’ll remember forever.

Naturally, it all starts in Rome where you’ll have the chance to stretch your legs and refuel after your flight on a privately guided walking tour that takes in the city’s delightful atmosphere and delicious food. (Think pizza blanca, mortadella, and ice cream galore.) Next, take the kids back in time to the days of Ancient Rome on a private tour of the Colosseum, the ruins of the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill where, according to legend, Romulus first settled what would later become the seat of an empire. Later, spend a pleasant half-day biking out to Rome’s famous Catacombs, a vast network of underground tunnels where early Christians buried their dead (don’t worry; all the bones are long gone!) before biking back along the ancient Appian Way with refreshments along the route. Next stop: Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance. Here, you’ll step out on a family walking tour of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities accompanied by a private guide who will explain the significance of oft-photographed landmarks like Piazza della Signoria, Piazza del Duomo, and Giotto’s Campanile (bell tower). Florence’s food is as famous as its art, and the whole family will have the chance to try their hand at making some under the guidance of an expert chef at a half-day cooking class. (Save room for tiramisu!) The experience winds up in Venice, which you’ll explore on a private walking tour and gondola cruise before having a go at making glass artwork in an artists workshop on the island of Murano.
